    1. Wait, are you saying that someone who enslaved half of the world and forced them to toil for her is someone to be liked? The only reason she doesn't have the status like Hitler is because she's British queen.

    2. Darling, history is taught selectively in some places in the world. Even the villain is the hero in his own story.

    3. that is my point too, dear. I mean the official number of people who died in foreign countries under USA invasions during Obama's rule is now over 5 million and still their media do not deem him a tyrant. Or when USA and UK bombed our national TV here in Serbia back in 1999, and killed more than 20 innocent journalists and people in the building that was not reported as terrorist act in Western media, but when those horrid people attacked the office of that offensive French paper a few months ago and killed some people it was considered an act of terrorism. And millions went to the streets to mourn the dead, which is OK, but then again, nobody in the West went to the street when hundreds or thousands of kids and men and women would get killed by their soldiers in Iraq, Iran..... Everything is so darn selective in the media and in people's minds too

    4. Darling, they are not interested in knowing the histories in other countries, so it is easy for them to hate. The idea of their superiority has been drummed into their heads from when they were children. The US and UK call all those men, women and children "collateral damage", which dehumanizes those victims. They might as well be honest and say "Oh, those 5 million? They were just dogs. And sometimes dogs die in wars."

      If it were their own women and children, they'd feel differently.

      Darling, the lies they were told about what was happening in your country are shocking. And as you know, they reinforce those lies with their Hollywood movies.

      For them morality is relative. And it's relative to their own point of view and their own interests.

      I have to live with these people and they are so poorly educated that one simply cannot converse with them. I have asked many Americans what they know of my own country and they freely admit to knowing nothing and to not being interested. Yet these same people expect me to know everything about them. My mind just can't comprehend that. Why aren't they interested in knowing other peoples history, music, food, traditions. These things should be of interest to them.

      Also, both our countries history and civilization is so much older and more sophisticated than theirs. Yet we must endure being looked down upon by them.

      How do I make it through a single day without slapping one of them? The fear of prison.

    5. You hit the nail right on the head, dear with that first passage on collateral damage! Over the years, I've found that even peaceful people over there who don't generally support wars of their governments would accept collateral damage if it feeds their irrational and delusional idea of the protection of their own imaginary freedoms and rights....

      You got that right... when only one of their buildings was destroyed they turned the world upside down and they've built a whole history around it... but when they destroy whole countries... who cares... right?

      Darling, did you hear what happened last weekend in Macedonia? 80 Albanian terrorists have taken over and hijacked a town down there with guns wanting to start a war or something. During the siege they killed more than 20 policemen. It was a direct attack on the state, people and government. Did any of the Western channels or papers report about it? Was it the news of the week? Nope... but if only one policeman got killed by a Muslim terrorist somewhere in the West they would blow it out of the proportions. But Albanians down here are their allies... so.... that explains it....

      It's funny how they don't know anything about world history and the history of certain places, traditions, culture, politics... but yet they'd gladly destroy them, bomb them in matters of seconds... They support attacks on countries they wouldn't even know how to find on maps.

      Delete
    6. I'm stuck in the States darling, so of course I've not heard about Macedonia. The only way they would talk about Macedonia is if they decided to bomb them.

      They just aren't taught world history. They only know WWI and WWII after they got into the war. And that was late in the game, after everyone else had done all the hard work and made the big sacrifices. They literally do say about WWII "We won the war" There's no point in trying to explain it to them as they've no idea of what happened before Pearl Harbor.

      And try to get them to talk about music outside of America. It's infuriating and it's insulting. We are all expected to know everything about their music, but ask one of them about ours and they are clueless. They've no idea how hurtful such a thing is. It's like saying "No, you and your stupid little country aren't worth my time and attention." Building that privacy fence is the best thing I've ever done since coming here. At least I don't have to look at these idiots when I'm out of doors.

    7. I have a feeling they will let Albanians invade and take over Macedonia as they did with Kosovo... and then they might also take southern Serbia and raise hell in Bosnia too... mark my words....

      Yep, they won the war by arriving to the beach :) Not that we don't appreciate their help... I remember a beautiful story from Southern Serbia where a whole village hid and saved a bunch of US pilots during WW2 risking their own lives. But Brits also bombed us as our allies at the beginning of the war... so go figure... that is when all the animals from Belgrade ZOO went running around the city like in some film....

  6. Uck, another series/movie about the British monarchy. What is the draw? In colonial days I think I would have been a rebel, regardless of whether they were good or nefarious rulers.

    I have never played Warcraft, but I have loved all the denizens and the story lines. Fantasy is and always will be my first love. Hey, maybe they could give Victoria evil magic and make it interesting, lol.

  8. I would so like to see Forbidden Empire. But you know these kinds of movies give me nightmares. However this one might be worth the risk.

    My home is a Victorian and it was built by a German. My God, I'm practically Royalty!

    1. Dahlink, it is possible you can find EMPIRE on Netflix or Hulu... since they say it will be out on VOD this weekend.

      Dahlink, you is such a traitor living in a Victorian house as an Irish lass :) Do you have Victorian ghosts up there too, dear?

    2. Oh yes, we do have Victorian ghosts here. Mostly they say "Why oh why did we have to eat such bland food."

  10. Add me to the list of those looking forward to Forbidden Empire. It looks like it has just the right amount of weirdness that I like in a film.

    1. we do like European weirdness in films :) When it is not too over the top :)

    2. Over the top loses me pretty quickly! What was that one film with Heath Ledger? Imagination of Dr. Pernassis or something like that. I really wanted to like that one, but it ventured into over the top territory pretty quickly, I lost interest.

    3. All of Ledger's films are shallowly over the top.. including Brothers Grimm and that horrid dark superhero.

  11. Make me the director of that Bronte sister show, and I'll give you a reboot you will never forget. That's right.
